BENEFITING: The Foundation for Faces of Children
EVENT: Paces for Faces 2015
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2015
We'd like to thank everyone who contributed last year to the Foundation on behalf of Team Matthew. Your generosity has been used to assist children with a variety of craniofacial differences, including, most commonly, cleft anomolies. The Foundation provides education, outreach, scholarships and assistance to families and children affected by craniofacial differences because of your generosity!
Matthew is now 2 years old and we are so blessed to experience his development over the past year as he continues his joint journey of being born prematurely with bi-lateral cleft lip and palate. We are still amazed at the quality of care he has received as his external scars continuing to heal and fade each day. His vocabulary currently consists of one word, "ma", which he yells at different intonations to indicate Mom, Dad or Grandma. His speech therapy is going well and he seems to make new sounds each day, getting closer to adding to his vocabulary. Matthew has a great older sister who treats him the way older siblings do, always up for stealing his toys or scooter or "accidentally" nudging him to the ground. Thankfully Matthew has an easy going personality and thinks the world of Kate!
We hope that you can join us for Team Matthew again this year, either in person or perhaps by contributing to his walk team.
God Bless and Thank you,
Matthew, Kate, Tara and Michael
